Research Summary​​
Dr. Crisp’s scholarship seeks to identify practices and policies that can reduce inequities in transfer and college outcomes for students enrolled at community colleges and bachelor's granting accessible institutions.  To date, her research has focused on developing a mentoring framework to explain how students experience and receive various forms of mentoring support.  She is particularly  interested in conducting research that supports and uplifts Latinx students and other minoritized students who attend accessible institutions.
